F2F classes to continue despite XBB virus subvariant detection
Face-to-face classes will continue despite the detection of XBB subvariant, the Department of Education said.
“Sa ngayon, wala pa tayong advice on any change. Tayo naman sa DepEd, we’ll always take our cue from the advice given by the DOH pagdating sa mga health guidelines or health concerns,” DepEd Spokesperson Michael Poa said.
“Sa ngayon, wala pa tayong pagbabago na maanunsyo doon sa amendatory Department Order na na-issue natin just two days ago,” he added.
Poa was referring to Department Order No. 44, which allowed private schools to continue blended or full distance learning after November 2.
Eighty-one cases of the highly immune-evasive XBB subvariant have been detected..
